  1. Paspalum dilatatum

    Paspalum dilatatum is a species of grass known by the common name dallisgrass, Dallas grass, or sticky heads. It is native to Brazil and Argentina, but it is known throughout the world as an introduced species and at times a common weed. Its rapid growth and spreading rhizomes make it an invasive pest in some areas. It is present in the southern half of North America, southern Europe, much of Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and many tropical and subtropical areas. Paspalum dilatatum is a food source for several avian species, including the long-tailed widowbird. The common name dallisgrass was derived from A. T. Dallis, a 19th-century farmer who grew the species extensively near La Grange, Georgia.


  1. paspalum dilatatum

    Paspalum dilatatum, also known as Dallisgrass, is a perennial grass native to South America that has been introduced to many other parts of the world. It is characterized by its long, tough stems, flat leaves, and distinctive seed heads that grow in a raceme cluster. Paspalum dilatatum is often used in pastures for grazing because of its resistance to harsh conditions and ability to grow rapidly, but it can also be considered a weed in some cultivated areas. It thrives in moist, fertile soils.
